Nah you're not the worst. I'm a nerd for Batman the Animated Series. It was so stylized and interesting. They even did some unique techniques for the backgrounds that had never been done in western cartoons back then.
They handpainted the backgrounds on black canvas, only adding lighter shades of color to form the shapes of the buildings. The dark overtones were so cool.
Just watch this little intro and check out those bgs. So cool.
Oh! After watching it, I just realized, the use of silhouettes is amazing too. I use a lot of silhouettes in my comic for dramatic emphasis, probably because of the impact of BtAS.
